core-image-sato-sdk-ptest: Fix free space issues causing test failures
Some tests such as strace-ptest require more than the current 500MB of free space. Increase the amount available, staying under the 4GB limit. We have more flexibility now since we shrank kernel-devsrc and the comments are out of date due to that. This should improve the strace-ptest results and the util-linux ones since those sort after strace and also hit the space issues as strace-ptest didn't clean up after itself when failing.
